The Aviator Coffee Bar & Restaurant

    I love this cafe overlooking Dunkeswell Airfield and our children do too 🙂

    If you can, get a seat by the window so you can watch the planes come and go and the parachutists landing!

    With a friendly atmosphere and unpretentious cooking, it’s a fab and unusual place to get a bite to eat.

    There’s seating inside and outside.

    Food ranges from full English breakfasts, toasties, sausage and mash. On Sundays there’s a decent carvery.

    The best time to see planes and skydivers is between 10am – 2pm (weather dependant).

    Good place to combine with a walk in Hembury Fort.… Read more

    Bridwell Park, Uffculme

    Bridwell Park & The Orangery Cafe

      This is a gorgeous cafe to visit. Set in the grounds of Bridwell Park, there are stunning views over their grounds and if coming with children you can head down to the lake to explore.

      Some description from their website:

      The Orangery Cafe and Estate Parkland is typically open daily welcoming visitors between the hours of 10am and 4pm – unless published otherwise.

      Hidden from public gaze for over 240 years, the Devon home of Lord Ivar Mountbatten and James Coyle opened its’ doors to events for the very first time in January 2015.

      The Orangery Cafe offers a small but perfectly formed seasonal menu, a delightful edit of hand made gifts, artisan goodies and produce, along with a relaxed bar drinks collection – all set within tranquil, spacious, charming surrounds.Read more

        This is a great place if you want to combine a walk and a cafe.

        You can do the Swans Neck Circular Walk along Tiverton Canal (really pretty).

        Then stop off in their cafe which has indoor and lots of outdoor seating & is very child friendly.

        It’s next door to their farm shop if you’re wanting to get food supplies.

        Serving food between 9am – 2.30pm.

        Lot’s of parking (although can get busy in peak seasons).

        Yellow Deli Honiton Cafe | Eating out from Weavers Yurt

        The Yellow Deli

          An unusual cafe that is so beautifully decorated it’s an experience to visit.

          Yummy food includes hot steamed sandwiches which I’ve not experienced anywhere else!

          The walls and beams are made with aged wood recycled from old barns and demolition wood. And the wooden tables are made from aged trees. There are murals everywhere showing local life and scenery.
